"I have just tried to test this in a raku firing. No melt at all. Is there something missing? Borate? Silica? It did not melt at all! It was pretty hard to brush on, high neph sy glazes usually are, at least for me.
What is your experience with ceramics in general. (Long answer encouraged)
Taken classes at University of Utah Continuing Education. I have a wheel and a Skutt kiln at home. The University fires to cone 10, but at home I want to fire to cone 6. I also enjoy Raku.
What is your current involvement with electric fired ceramics? (long answer encouraged)
I have a Skutt kiln that I use to bisque fire. I've tried a few firings with Coyote
Clay glaze but not very happy with some of them and they are expensive. I would like to find a few (three maybe) reliable glazes that I can mix myself.
